Reflect and Remember
By Phyllis Naegeli
1 "Ellema! Where are you?" Her brother, Jelani, called.
2 "In here," said Ellema from her room.
3 Jelani peaked in the door. "What are you doing?"
4 "Homework," said Ellema. "Why?"
5 "I'm bored. Do you want to go to the rec center with me?"
6 Ellema shook her head and pointed to a pile of books and magazines. "No, I need to finish reading these books and articles."
7 Jelani's eye's grew wide. "Do you have to read all of them today?"
8 Ellema giggled. "Yes, today. But I only have to read certain parts."
9 Jelani wiped his brow. "Whew, I thought you'd have to read the whole pile." Jelani paused. "What are you reading about?"
10 "Juneteenth," said Ellema nonchalantly.
11 "Oh," said Jelani. Then he raised an eyebrow. "What's Juneteenth?"
12 Ellema put down the magazine she was holding and patted the end of her bed. "Sit down, and I'll tell you about it."
